Domaine Millet Freres 2017 Sancerre Rouge

Description

Ready to drink now! This pinot noir starts off with mulled black cherry and blackberry flavors. Floral and spice notes emerge midpalate, and everything is linked by beautiful acidity, while soft tannins offer support. Bramble details mark the mouthwatering finish.

It all started in the year 1850, when Domain Millet was created.

Bernard and Pierre's settled in the pretty little village of Bue, which was surrounded by vineyards. They noticed the existence of noble soils and they planted the famous grape varieties Sauvignon and Pinot Noir.

These soils and grape varieties have been recognized as an appellation (AOC), since 1936.

Both Bernard and Pierre had fine palates and always wanted to improve the quality of their wines. They were the first to follow the technological innovations of the last century and learned that great "terroir" meant regular and special care.

Over the years, they managed to pass down their knowledge and patience through generations. They are now on their fifth generation of winemakers running the Domain. If you visit, you’ll meet Monique, Francois or Nicolas.

Today, the property is 21 hectares, 75% is planted in Sauvignon (white Sancerre wine) and 25% in Pinot Noir (red and Rose Sancerre wine).
